Thank you for taking the time to read a little more about me. I am a licensed naturopathic doctor in Phoenix, Arizona who specializes in the natural treatment of autoimmune disease and mental illness. I also treat patients with allergies, asthma, hormonal imbalances, digestive disturbances, and developmental disorders like ADHD and autism.
My passion for treating autoimmune disease began when I was in my early 20’s. I was in the middle of my graduate school training when my health began to deteriorate rapidly. It was at this time that I was simultaneously diagnosed with three different autoimmune conditions. When my conventional physicians told me that these diseases and their accompanying symptoms were permanent, I refused to accept it. I knew there had to be another way. After considerable research, I found naturopathic medicine and began treatment with a local naturopathic doctor. As my body began to heal, I knew I had found my passion and my ultimate purpose – to help others just the way that my naturopathic doctor had helped me.
During my four years of medical school, I had the unique experience of learning the principles of naturopathic medicine from some of the most highly trained doctors in the field while simultaneously using these methods to further my own personal healing process. This dual-level training allowed me to learn at a deeper level as I was able to experience the results of each modality first-hand.
As my training progressed, I focused intensely on learning and mastering the treatments and methods that were most effective in helping me – the most influential of those being constitutional homeopathy. I studied and trained with some of the best homeopathic physicians in the country, and today homeopathic medicine is the primary treatment for every patient that comes through my door.
I graduated with high honors from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. Besides homeopathic medicine, I have also received additional training in CranioSacral therapy, Biolinguistic Kinesiology, and Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT). I have found these methods to be vitally important in the correction of structural and mental-emotional imbalances that lead to disease. While naturopaths are licensed in the state of Arizona to prescribe prescription medications, I have a strong passion for using treatments that stimulate the body’s natural healing processes instead of simply managing symptoms.
